When Universal announced that they were going to remake of Scarface, many fans of the iconic Al Pacino gangster flick were upset; of course, those who know their film history know that Brian De Palma’s 1983 film (starring Pacino) was itself a remake of the famous 1932 Howard Hawks film. Both versions follow an ambitious criminal who takes over his city’s underworld, only to be undone by his own ambition (and a twisted big-brother complex).
David Ayer (Training Day, End of Watch) wrote a script draft for the new Scarface - but apparently the studio wasn’t enthused with that version, because they brought on writer Paul Attanasio (Donnie Brasco) to do a new draft. Today, we have a rumor about what kind of angle Attanasio is taking with the story.
